9780061123948: The Complete Guide to Uninvited Advice on Raising Children

"There is no such thing as a bad child, just bad parents."

We are all familiar with the kind of advice for parents offered by family, friends, passersby, and social services -- that being advice of the uninvited, unhelpful, unrealistic, and plain unhinged variety. Now, for the first time, the best parenting advice has been gathered together so that you might sidestep the worrying chore of consulting the experts and create your very own pick-and-choose approach to child rearing, happy in the knowledge that someone, somewhere, thinks you're doing it right.

For any parent who has tried and failed to meet the expectations of the "Baby Whisperer," opinionated in-laws, Dr. Spock, and the hordes of other unsolicited meddlers, here is the perfect remedy. This wickedly refreshing book is a must-have for stressed-out parents everywhere.

About the Author:

Alice Beaven is married with two children. She and her husband have received lots of uninvited advice. Despite their best efforts, their chil-dren seem to be growing up very well all by themselves.

Review:

'Like a cooling wetwipe across the fevered brows of beleaguered parents everywhere (who dare not read a newspaper or turn on the TV for fear of receiving yet more child-rearing advice), comes this delightful satire on childcare manuals, illustrated with mock Victorian cartoons. Read it and bawl (with pleasure) .' -- Bookseller, November Top Title (Humour and Gift bo 20050805 'This brilliantly simple book is the perfect tonic to all those unwanted, unhelpful and occasionally totally mad tips mums get ... hilarious' -- The Sun 20050805
